Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0152 AM CST Fri Feb 23 2024

Valid 241200Z - 251200Z


An upper-level ridge will build in across the western US with
downstream troughing across the east D2/Saturday through the
remainder of the weekend. Surface high pressure over the Plains will
slowly weaken allowing for increasing winds through the day.
Southerly dry return flow will increase across the southern High
Plains and breezy northwest flow is expected in the lee of the
Rockies and central High Plains. While breezy, poor overlap of gusty
winds, low humidity and dry fuels is expected. As such, fire weather
concerns will remain low for much of the CONUS. Locally dry and
breezy conditions are possible across parts of the northern/central
Plains and central TX. However, fuels across these regions are less
receptive to fire spread suggesting fire-weather concerns will
remain localized.
